Offer #2

Today Scott recieved an offer from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. Here is a map to get your bearings:

Evanston is a suburb of Chicago, and from Evanston you can see the Chicago skyline. It looks like this:

Interesting facts about Evanston and Northwestern University:
-The university was founded back in the 1860s (back when they thought Illinois was "northwestern")
-Evanston is the birthplace of Tinkertoys.
-other than that I couldn't find anything else. It must be a nice place, though...there are 9000 people per square mile, and they've got to be there for some reason, right?

We are excited that Scott has two offers. The offers seem to have no affect on Sophie and Syrena, however. When I ask them where they want to move they say, "to an underwater mermaid castle."

They also want me to have "eleven hundred" more babies.

It is a good thing we don't give our children everything they ask for.


  1. An underwater mermaid castle! HAHAHAHA Congrats to Scott! How do you feel about THIS offer?

  2. Elenventy hundred? You must get busy!

  3. And would you believe that Sufjan Stevens has an album called, "Illinois"? He should pay me for all the advertising I'm doing for him! Someone should pay me to stop giving everyone my unsolicited opinions about music. Rock on.

  4. only "eleven hundred," huh? well that's doable, but you gotta work fast and have lots more multiples.

  5. Eleven hundred-you'll be busy no and through the eternities. But the kids couldn't have a better mom!

  6. Hey, we could get together when we're in Indiana...any incentive?:)
